#tinasjubilee – Celebrating with an EPIC Giveaway

January 2, 2014

Happy New Year to everyone. Welcome to 2014. I hope you all had a good break and are rearing to go and make this your best year yet!

This is a special year for me in so many ways. To start with, this here is my 200th post. Today I’m also celebrating my 2nd Blogging Birthday and to top it all I am turning the big 5-0 this August. Phew!

I’ve been thinking long and hard about how to mark these celebrations! How do I envisage my 50th Birthday Bash? Although I threw fantastic parties for both my 30th and 40th, I don’t really fancy a big party this year. What I do fancy is to celebrate ALL year round instead! This will be an epic year, full of celebrations, festivities, get-togethers, travel, new projects and much more.

So, we’re starting right here, right now! To mark my 2nd Blogging Birthday I’ve organised a FABULOUS giveaway. As it’s 2014, there are 14 products and 1 winner! Yes, you read correctly. Now, c’mon, that’s quite an epic giveaway, would you agree? The lucky winner will receive 14 individual packages arriving at their home sometimes in February! Honestly, I wish I could enter myself!!

Of course, these are not just any products. I’ve carefully curated 14 products from people and businesses that do great work and I personally chose to help me celebrate. They all embody the Colourliving mantra of ‘born out of passion’. They’re certainly all inspirational. Thank you to all for your generous and kind donations for this giveaway! I’m seriously touched and honoured!

So, dear readers, are you ready for this extravaganza? Ok, then let me show you the loot!

Layout 1

From top left:

1. An inspiring couple with a great eye for the quirky and unusual. They opened their first shop in London in 2012 and started Tusch & Egon online to share limited editions of beautiful things by contemporary artists from around the world. For those of you that speak German, ‘Tusch und Egon’ is an Anagram of the German words ‘schoen und gut’ which translates to ‘beautiful and good’. I LOVE all the Dürer sculptures they sell!
Tusch und Egon – Duerer Hare Sculpture in White

2. I first met the lovely people of The Journal Shop when they first started out and it’s thanks to them that I was introduced to the amazing Japanese Midori stationery! If you want the best selection of the world’s designer stationery, you found the place! I certainly can’t live without my Midori fix! The Midori Travellers Notebook is a very sought after gem!
The Journal Shop – Midori Travellers Notebook in Brown

3. Cavaliero Finn sell affordable work from both emerging and internationally recognised artists and designers. Their online shop showcases a constantly evolving contemporary collection throughout the year and I met the wonderful Debra and Juliana at one of their home-cum gallery exhibitions in South East London. I very much liked, amongst many others, Alice Mara’s work.
Cavaliero Finn – Affordable Housing Salt & Pepper Pots

4. The discovery of the Artefact cards and meeting John, who designed and developed them, has been one of my highlights of 2013. You can read about some of the ways I use them here. I recently used my yellow ones as tags on my hand-made Christmas cards. The possibilities are endless. Having a dislike for post-it notes, the Artefact cards will/must surely one day be their universal replacement. You read it here first!
I’m touched and humbled to have been asked to pick my own colour for a special limited edition run in honour of this giveaway.
Artefact ‘Tina Bernstein’ Special Limited Edition

5. Yumalum, an Etsy shop selling retro and midcentury inspired colourful poster prints, is the creation of talented graphic designer and fellow blogger Mark Griffiths. I would be happy to own each and every print Mark designs. I adore this Polaroid inspired print!
Yumalum – Polaroid Poster Print – Instant Rainbow

6. Susan Gaston of White Dove and Wonder, the formidable art and antique dealer and a gem of a woman, has preserved her three generation family trade by creating hand-made pieces for the home with Vintage 1930s wooden shoe lasts. The end products are beautifully crafted and I’m tickled by the Loo Roll Holder (also Doorstop)! When clicking on the link, please scroll down until you see the Loo Roll Holder.

7. Mathmos, named after the lava-like substance which features in the cult film Barbarella, celebrated 50 years in September 2013. Edward Craven Walker was the founder of the iconic Lava Lamp in 1963 which are, to date, still made in Britain. In 1964 (my birth year) he invented the Astro Baby Lava Lamp. I wish had kept mine which my parents bought for us when we were little.

8. Volpe and Volpe, founded by the lovely Trish, wanted to bring a slice of ceramic Heritage back, put them into a modern context and make them relevant again. Her products are practical, beautiful but are fun and modern as well. I love the Bronze Swan Vase, hand-made in Stoke On Trent. It’s a modern representation of the classic, mid century swan vase planter.

9. Will Taylor, all round charming, gorgeous and talented chap, authors the hugely popular interiors blog ‘Bright.Bazaar’. If you want colour inspiration, Will is your man and this April sees the much anticipated release of his first Book: Bright Bazaar – embracing colour for make-you-smile style! The title couldn’t be more apt and I’m so very proud of him and can’t wait to own my own copy! The lucky winner of this giveaway will receive one of the first UK edition copies that arrive at the Publisher’s offices (Jacqui Small LLP). I have it on good authority it will be way before April!

10. Another highlight of 2013 was to come across Content – Beauty & Wellbeing. This boutique organic skincare store, naturopathic clinic and beauty salon is definitely London’s leading organic and natural apothecary. The customer service is outstanding and they specialise in emerging niche natural skin care. Their website is a resource centre in itself and it’s now my go to home for all things beauty and health. I love these 3 burning oils to suit all your emotional needs!
Content – Limited Edition Gift Box of Essential Oils

11. Mini Moderns are not only one of the most talented guys I’ve come across, but genuinely the nicest people with it. Their products, ‘made in the UK by nice people’, range from wallpapers and fabrics to cushions, rugs and ceramics.  Their designs are inspired by mid-century British textiles, vintage toys, literature, childhood memories and travel. This year sees the launch of their bedding range in the widely popular Whitby fabric design.
The lucky winner will receive 2 pillow cases and a duvet cover size of their choice in what surely will become a bestseller!
Minimoderns – Whitby Bedding Set

12. Hunted and Stuffed, founded by the gorgeous Ellie Laycock, source original vintage textiles and upcycle them into beautiful new creations here in the UK. Products include utilitarian but quirky vintage towels to elaborate and painstakingly embellished vintage wedding Kimono silks, often woven with real gilt thread. All pieces are completely one-of-a-kind. I’ve chosen this fabulous and unique cushion for the giveaway!
Hunted and Stuffed – Vintage 1970s London Upcycled Cushion

13. Hole & Corner magazine celebrates craft, beauty, passion and skill. It’s about people who spend more time ‘doing’ than ‘talking’, 
who put content above style, whose work is their life. Launched in May 2013, issue 2 went on sale last November. This biannual print magazine was definitely amongst my favourite of 2013 and I really like their regularly updated 
digital platform, where they aim to promote local trade and talented 
The winner will receive a 1 year’s subscription to the magazine.

14. Alison Sye is an artist who scavenges the skips of London looking for abandoned treasures to resuscitate. I’ve been collecting Alison’s art, in the form of cards, for a while now. She’s as lovely a her art and for this giveaway the lucky winner will receive a selection of individual art cards in the most delicious stitched envelope. You have been warned!

Just started to get back into scanning a few blogs today and surprised to see how many people didn’t really enjoy 2013…. I PROMISE, this will be the year for the crafty bloggy get-together at mine. The patio is being done as we speak, so no excuses from me-kick me up the butt if necessary! xxx

    Happy New Year and congratulations on the 200th blog. I have a suggestion for your 50th celebration, instead of a big party do 50 small celebratory events or treats for yourself. A friend did this for her 50th and spread the enjoyment over a longer period. Have fun. XX

    I actually had to pick my jaw up off the floor (well, my laptop keyboard), because I am stunned by this gorgeous epic giveaway. You have put all of us other bloggers to shame!
    I also had to put another item on my bucket list: “have limited edition stationery named after me”. The envy eats at my innards like a living being!!! 😀

    My wish for 2014 is to be more aware of what I need to do to be happy and healthy, and to be a better friend. And to blog more! And get cats (which should give me plenty to blog about).

    Have a great year on your blog and in “real life”! 😀

After a few years of moving to the country from London and then again to the seaside and having babies I am feeling the most settled I have felt in a long time. I too am looking forward to lots of get togethers with friends and family and enjoying our lovely home by the sea.

    Hello! Well, what a big giveaway for a big birthday! We don’t think we’ve ever seen such a huge stash on offer! How exciting 😀 Happy year-long Birthday celebrations for you and your blog! For 2014 we would like to create this scene in our bedroom: We are sitting on our crisp new mini moderns Whitby bedding enjoying Wills excellent new book. The room will be illuminated by a Mathmos lava lamp and a yumalum print will hang on the wall. There will be a whole host of other Tina goodies on their way to us in the post! hashtag: PositiveThinking 😉 xx

    What a fun Monday thing! I most wish for there to be no hunger in the UK. (Will just leave it at that and not get on the soapbox about it).

    Happy 2 year blog anniversary! Now that’s cause for celebration 🙂 My hopes for 2014 are many but focus on accomplishing something I’ve been somewhat fearful to pursue- a very personal essay that, as of now, is in fragments in my email. Here’s hoping I can make the first step toward putting the full story on paper this year !

    Congratulations Tina! I think 2014 is going to be a very exciting year 🙂
    My wish for 2014 is for some of those happy small moments that I’ll enjoy and remember – being made the perfect cup of tea, having a laugh with a good friend, the satisfaction of a good day’s work and lots of time spent with a purring cat. Amy xxx

    Hi Tina!

    Happy New Year! (I am working to the Chinese Year this year as it is my year- The Horse!)

    What an amazing list of prizes for one very lucky winner!

    Congratulations on your Jubilee year! Mine is 14 years away, but pretty sure that will fly by, as the last decade or so has!

    My wish for this year is to finally feel a bit more settled in myself, my business and my home!
    The last few years I have been lucky enough to be distracted by some awesome projects and opportunities and have enjoyed and learnt from them immensely. But I think this year I really need to take stock of things and work out for myself my own path and try to follow it – with only a little meander here and there, when they are at least heading in the right direction!
    We had to move twice in the last 18 months which was really pretty horrible – especially the first time after living there for 8 years! But now we have made the leap from flat-sharing with others to having a place to ourselves, and it is great! Still renting, and further out East but still so much more liberating! And it was unfurnished, so all the furniture I have acquired over time finally has a place to be!
    The landlord seems nice, so even though we have not discussed long-term plans, fingers crossed we won’t have to move again time soon.

    So here’s to moving onwards and upwards, while also laying down some roots! Is that even possible?! I hope so!

    All the best for 2014 and beyond!

    Take care,
    Sanna xxx
